What's the saddest meal you've ever had?
Pic related. Straight from the cafeteria.
not my photo but this
Cheer up faggot, those aren't that bad in a pinch. Think of all the little kids who have to eat that everyday but instead of turkey its one slice of cheap Bologna, no lettuce, no mustard, miracle whip instead of mayo and no cheese.
What's bad, OP? I've eaten sadder meals for almost every day of my life compared to that.
The saddest meal I had was probably when a friend made me a pizza. It had little gummy bears in it for a stupid prank. The entire pizza was ruined.
I ate a hot dry years old packet of ramen noodles buried in my cars glove box when I was without a place to live or money. It was 100 degrees outside with no ac in the car and I was in a coffee shops parking lot crying covered in sweat.
they are traditionally served outside of a hardware store.
The biggest retailer in the country, Woolworths, tried to set up a chain of hardware stores to compete but weren't able to due to Bunnings monopoly on the market. Infact twenty years ago there were several hardware companies but Bunnings get BTFOing everyone. They had to drop the business two days ago after haemorrhaging hundreds of millions of dollars and pretty much the universal response was "Good".
The store wasn't even bad, it had some decent products at reasonable prices and benefited the consumer by having competition. And everyone was happy that the new business failed because it deviated from the Bunnings status quo. Australians are fucking retarded. I'm pretty sure Australians like being controlled by monopolistic corporations and oil companies. We also have this weird thing where anything someone doesn't like is deemed "unaustralian". Like Australians genuinely believe that Australian is the adjective for objectively righteous morality.
Fuck you OP. Stop acting like you eat foie gras and caviar on a regular basis. You've never had pic related.
We have these in America too, but we serve it on a hoagie roll instead of sandwich bread. That said I eat most my hot dogs on sandwich bread.

Don't move to America. It's exactly the same.
This looks like a really good sandwich. Did you add some salt and pepper to it? I love cheap sandwiches like this, especially when the bread sticks to the roof of your mouth. But then again I also liked the philly cheesesteak wrap the guy posted the other day.
That's what this is. I dunno why, but they never eat out of taco trucks when they are standing around there. It's always hot dogs and hoagies with chips and cans of Coke.
remember when I took this picture. Was pretty much all we had. I usually have onion rings and tater tots with them and dip the corndogs in ranch but the only thing I could find was catsup
for about 3 years in primary school my lunch was simply a buttered bread roll, sometimes with ham and cheese
to this day i have a distaste for sandwiches unless they're expertly crafted by myself
>Saddest meal ever
>ham, cheese and lettuce
Most sandwiches here are just 1 kind of spread.
Pic related, saddest meal: Bread with a thin layer of butter or nothing at all. Literally translated 'sandwich content' as in 'be content you get anything at all you little shit'
I work in a place where we get a lot of students on field trips and the poorer districts always get government lunch. The saddest thing I've seen given to them was a cheap hamburger bun with at least 6 slices of government american cheese and a packet of mayo.
cheese sandwiches are pretty popular around here. bread/bun, few slices of kraft singles. They're better warmed up but fine cold. Hadn't though of mayo, though I'm sure people use it. I've only had it with ketchup. Tried relish once it was ok
This one time I made bourbon chicken. I forgot the brown sugar. It tasted truly awful, but I forced myself to eat it, it was the second worst thing I ever ate in its entire, and being that I was poor at the time and this was my one big meal of the month, I just ate it all. It was bitter, harsh, and tasted like chicken soaked in nail polish remover, but I ate it anyway. To make matters worse, though, my girlfriend at the time was like "you don't have to eat that if you don't want to, you look like youre physically in pain with every bite you take, I don't want to see you like this, look, we'll go out to eat, its not a big deal, so just take that out of your mouth and throw it away, please."
>kids crying, starving like I was
>no pizza money
>don't know how to cook
>decide to make spaghetti
>curly noodles only
>kids angry, put blue food coloring in to make it fun
>no sauce, no cheese, just butter
>kids refuse to eat it
>I eat alone
I feel immense regret thinking about it to this day.
On acid at a friend's house at about three in the morning a few weeks ago and she was eating cold leftover mac and cheese with ketchup on it- I had a few bites out of hunger/desperation and felt like I died a thousand deaths. I was in existential pain. I felt like a bad person. I immediately chewed a stick of gum and I was convinced I would never get the taste out of my mouth.
School enchilada. Except it wasn't an enchilada. It was a fried tortilla thing with nacho cheese filling and the sauce on top tasted like burnt, crusty ketcup. It was so bad, I nearly choked but ate it because I had no other money for lunch.
two weeks ago my girlfriend broke up with me. she dropped me off at my dorm at school two days before the school facilities opened up. I was basically living at her apartment and kept all my food there. She wouldn’t let me come pick up anything. I have a medical condition that doesn’t allow me to drive. I had nothing to eat the first day. The second day I was hungry af and none of my friends were in town because of winter break. I found a can of campbell’s chunky clam chowder in my sock drawer. I didn’t have a microwave or a spoon so I folded up the pull tab top and used it as an eating implement. I ate the cold soup from the can like a faggot. I was crying so much, that I cut my lip really bad with the metal lid-spoon and I bleed everywhere. I was stuck in alone in a dorm room covered in blood, tears, and clam chowder. And then David Bowie died the next day.
Staring down the barrel of a gun, then at the last moment going, "Nah, I'm not hungry."
I'm not too sure if I could choose one specifically. As a person who has been poor all of his life, I can say I've eaten my fair share of depressing meals.
>a dry square of ramen noodles straight from the package
>dry ramen crushed in a bowl with a powder packet sprinkled over it
>those generic bar-s hotdogs on stale white bread and old ketchup packets
>a turkey and mustard sandwich made on moldy/stale white bread
>plain boiled spaghetti noodles -- no sauce, no seasonings
>cold cuts right from the package, and a bag of popcorn
The worst times for me were truly not having anything at all... literally digging through the fridge and cupboards for anything that might be edible.
$22+ blandest fuckin turkey sandwiches and a diet coke from a pushcart at ATL airport. They don't show prices on it so you don't feel the Anal. Had 21 minutes to make my connection, no choice, other than missing my flight because faggots insist on bringing every Goddamn thing the fuckin own in a carry on bag which adds 40 minutes per flight extra time for boarding and offloading while faggots struggle to handle their luggage in an aisle which can barely accommodate their gigantic fat asses let alone their precious possessions.
Check out the 1400mg sodium. That nasty shit needed salt. The 1.5g of salt only brought it up to "bland" tier.
I felt like shit rest of the day and pissed out what looked like melted orange sorbet when I finally found a toilet.
While my parent was in rehab and I was watching her house and making the payments on it I was eating slices of bread with garlic, bread and tomato sauce, or mayo tomato and bread for what seemed like forever. Other than that it was drinking out of a handle of Jack Daniels.
A can of chicken soup I found in my desk, eaten cold straight from the metal with a plastic fork I found in the common room, at a computer in the basement lab as I struggled to get my paper printed.
I eat a tortilla wrap with peanutbutter and a banana in it all the time. It might seem strange, but I think it tastes pretty great and is a great way to get a lot of fiber into your diet -- all three have plenty.
I have no idea what the hell you were thinking with the cheddar, though.
I've also had the ramen packet with the seasoning packet sprinkled on top. It's not bad, it's just tricky to get the seasoning to adhere to the noodles and not fall through. Might want to wet them just a bit? And maybe only use half the packet, since it's meant to be in a soup and it's highly concentrated.
The worst I've had off the top of my head was some sort of reconstituted scrambled eggs from the school cafeteria. Some grade C military-mess kind of stuff. I can't remember what they were called or why they tasted so awful, but I had one bite and I was done.
And I actually thought most of the cafeteria food was pretty good, especially for the price.
>got ditched on Halloween
>went to Baskin Robins for 31% off sundae
>it was not 31% off
>sat alone looking outside window
>eating peanut butter chocolate, vanilla and mint chocolate chip
>guy in inflatable car salesman costume and his gf outside see me sad
>try to cheer me up by waving around in the air
>>>“you're home awfully early anon”
My friend made me some really nice ravioli, and I accidentally left the container on the boot of the car on my way to school. I saw it on the way back, they were hard, and the bread that went with it was a rock.
I still ate it. Don't know how I did become ill from it.
A raw onion, while I was drunk on cheap whiskey. Eaten like an apple.
Half of a loaf of Wonderbread
I was really depressed and only eating one meal a day, typically take out fried chicken of some sort. Turns out after a few days of almost nothing but fat and protein you fiend for carbs like a motherfucker.
I've done that too.
Or tinned tuna mixed into instant noodles.
Sometimes I cook it in a mess tin so it's slightly less depressing to eat.
Oh my god, that's absolutely fucking ridiculous. 18 dollars for some shit that cost them less than 1 to make. Exploitation at its finest.
I was stuck in Fort Lauderdale airport on a layover once. Ended up paying 14 dollars for a bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich, and a single hashbrown patty. The prices airport restaurants put on their food is borderline robbery.
University cafeteria Korea. Pizza toast with 2 french fries, ketchup sauce spaghetti, pickled daikon, kimchi, and mushrooms in a soy bean broth.
You shut your bitch mouth fried onion is amazing.
In 2010 I would eat a shit ton of circle k burgers and Chocolate rice Crispies, one day i ate them in a big bowl meant for baking or left overs. In 2012 I would eat a shit ton of scrambled eggs and I would cook them wrong a lot and it would be gross. I mostly eat fruit now and sometimes on the weekend I'll have something bad but made fresh at a restaurant. I went from 240 to 170 in 2015
It's sort of a tie between a bowl of dry Cheerios, saltines and ketchup packets I found in my drawer, and soup done >>7294568 style (but without the breakup and Bowie death.)
I was so stoked when I could finally dig up enough change to get a 60 cent burrito at Del Taco.
My girlfriend made me lasagna the night she broke up with me. I ate it all and then after she dumped me. There was still a shit ton of lasagna left the next day. I ate all of it cold in one sitting.
Bitch knew I loved lasagna.
I was stuck airside at Bangkok for about 20 hours once. They had an EXTREMELY overpriced Burger King that was about $25 for a small whopper meal. The worst part is that it was not made fresh. The fries had to have been sitting there at least an hour, and the burger, god knows how long. Everything airside was robbery.
Landside though, the airport has good cheap food.
i once started to make gravy with bacon grease, added a shit ton of flour and fucked it up and then added a tiny bit of spaghetti. i dont know what the fuck i was thinking i had like one bite and threw the rest away,
Are you the speedo warrior tony abbott?
My mom used to slap leftovers between two slices of white bread, drown them on mayo, and call it a sandwich. An example that particularly sticks out is when she took dry, cold roast chicken leftovers straight from the fridge, made the sandwiches with her usual formula, forgot about them, and I had to eat the soggy awful piece of shit like 3 hours after it was made, fished out of a plastic bag in her purse. There wasn't a lot of chicken left either so it was basically a stale mayo sandwich.
It's why I find white bread disgusting to date.
Thats not even close to the sadest meals ive had.
Bisquick and water microwaved till it sorta resembles bread product.
Lunch meat, not good like bologna , with a packet of gas station hot sauce to dip it in
My brother used to take the flavor packets out of top ramen, we didnt pay our power bill, so hippy chips with out the season packet. Just dried ramen noodles crushed up.
Wilted letuce, riced dried out in the fridge , rolled togeather again not heated.
Your food is boring not bad
SHUT THE FUUUUUUUCK UUUUUUUUUUUUUUP
EAT THE FUCKING ONIOOOOOOONS
Oh yeah, and she used to put a slice of american cheese there for good measure until I told her to stop putting them on mine. I sometimes wonder if there was something wrong with my mom's tastebuds.
Do you actually understand what the term cuckold means?
I don't think you do.
one time I spent all my money on drugs and had no food so I went to the food court and ate some left behind butter chicken, nan bread and this onion thing. it was like almost a full meal what a waste. It wasn't especially bad I mean it tasted good I was just really depressed that day which made it worse.
or this one time I had just moved into this house and I didn't own anything but a sleeping bag, and I had stolen some food from my last house and I had no money. So all I ate that day was cold baked beans from the can with my fingers. I also had no can opener so I got a brick and smashed it through the top and it got bits of rock in there so I had to chuck away the top layer. mostly it was depressing because I had nothing to sit on or sleep on. I ended up getting all this carboard out of the trolleybin to lay my sleeping bag on because the floor was uncomfortable
